Mac mini 2012

Does Balance work with the new Mac mini with USB 3.0 ports? I might be getting one.

Thanks!

I hope so, as i've just got a Mac mini too. Got i7 version, just need to upgrade the ram, then need to save up for the software now. Just looking a the pros and cons of all the DAWs out there before I make my mind up for definite. Anyway that aside, the Mac mini is ace :-)

I've edited my original message. I meant to ask if Balance works with the new Mac mini late 2012 with USB 3.0 ports.

Thanks!

Can't answer your question SteveeGhoul, but I've been considering getting one...
Anyone know if it can handle two monitors?

Can't tell u for certain but I think I remember the Props saying something about the USB 3 issues with Balance only affected certain Windows chipsets.

That said there were no Macmini 2012 then so hopefully Apple are using the same type of USB3 ports that are used of the other Macs.

Yes it handles dual displays - Thunderbolt (Mini DisplayPort - DVI/VGA, HDMI - HDMI)

I use a 2012 MBA. Im 1000% sure it will work, as 1. It works w/mine & 2. Apple's USB 3.0 ports are also USB 2.0 Ports. They are Dual.

I don't own Balance but my Presonus Audiobox 1818vsl seems to be working for the most part. I seem to be getting random clicks occasionally but haven't been able to troubleshoot yet.

This could also be an issue with my speakers as one of them behaves badly.


As far as crashes though, haven't had any on Reason and I purposely kept Reason open all night to see if it would crash. It didn't.

I have upgraded the ram to 16 gigs and installed a 2tb external hard drive and dvd drive. I will do a facetime camera at some point but right now not a big priority.

I am copying a lot of my files from my old PC via wireless right now but that takes a while but I am doing this stuff between jobs and sleep.
